I know there are many posts on this subject. We were just told we WILL be doing this under no uncertain terms. We have semi private rooms. We have dementia pts,confused people , psych pts, drug seekers, etc now. How is bedside report going to help them feel like a special snowflake when they arent even able to participate in the report, yet their room mate probably will know more about them then they do.
Are all hospitals going to this crap, or is it just "magnet" ones? More like opposing magnet.
oh, and when iI read prev. posts that " oh we just give the abbreviated versions in front of the pt ( so i guess they can feel all warm and cozy inside that we chose to include them in their" plan of care , lol), we have also been told NO- we will the the WHOLE report in the rooms- there are not to be any nurses out at the nursing stations sitting down. And we will also be having senior management personel following us around and critiquing our reports.
Gee, if I wanted to become an actor, I would have gone to school for that.
